Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/2/2012, Location: Africa

Afren announces that production at the Ebok field, located offshore south east Nigeria, has been increased to a stabilised rate of circa 40,000 bopd, following the commissioning and ramp up of all production wells associated with the initial phases of the Ebok development. As a result of the ramp up in production at the Ebok field, aggregate net working interest production attributable to the Company has reached a rate of circa 55,400 boepd. A production rate above the year-end target of 50,000 boepd has been sustained since 19 December 2011 from the Ebok, Okoro and Côte d'Ivoire operations.

In addition, gross production on the Ogini and Isoko fields has nearly doubled to circa 10,500 bopd from circa 6,000 bopd, following increased compressor uptime and the opening of an additional two strings, since First Hydrocarbon Nigeria and its partner Nigerian Petroleum Development Company ("NPDC") completed the acquisition of OML 26 on 1 December 2011.

Osman Shahenshah, Chief Executive of Afren, commented:
"We are delighted that all production wells drilled as part of the initial phases of the Ebok field development have been commissioned, and to have increased production to 40,000 bopd, in line with expectations. This marks one of the quickest independent developments of its scale in Nigeria to date.

"The Group is in a strong position with aggregate net working interest production of 55,400 boepd going into 2012, as we embark upon an extensive E&A drilling campaign in Ghana, Nigeria, the Joint Development Zone of Nigeria Sao Tomé and Principe, Tanzania, Kenya and the Kurdistan region of Iraq, that has the potential to materially transform and increase our discovered resource base."
